Johnny Depp’s teeth stole the spotlight at Cannes, overshadowing his acclaimed performance!
Johnny Depp’s teeth:According to reports, a special team was tasked with fixing his appearance before his appearance at the festival. However, they were unable to quickly change the color of his teeth.
Back in the 1990s, a toothpaste commercial popularized the phrase “The life of a celebrity’s teeth.” White teeth, the coveted symbol of Hollywood stars, should be a given. However, Johnny Depp, renowned for his role in the Pirates of the Caribbean series, has faced criticism for his dirty and unappealing teeth. The attention garnered by his dental dilemma far surpassed the recognition for his celebrated acting prowess.
Johnny, who had faced a Hollywood ban following allegations of domestic violence against actress Amber Heard, with their divorce finalized in 2017, made a comeback at the 76th Cannes International Film Festival. The prestigious event kicked off in the scenic south of France on May 16th. After emerging victorious from a defamation lawsuit against each other, which unearthed a labyrinth of legal battles, Johnny, who had been leading a quiet life in a rural English town, returned to the limelight. Naturally, his presence on the red carpet became a spectacle that captivated the masses.
Johnny Depp’s teeth stole the spotlight at Cannes
The opening performance of Jeanne du Barry, where he portrayed King Louis XV of France (original title), received a thunderous seven-minute standing ovation and earned tremendous applause. However, amidst all the accolades, there was one detail that caught everyone’s attention—his yellowed teeth. Despite his smile during the photo shoot with the director and co-stars, the unflattering sight of his teeth, adorned with indescribable brown stains, was hard to miss. Displeased comments flooded the internet, with some expressing their revulsion and even demanding the exclusion of close-up photos.
This isn’t the first time Johnny’s teeth have come under scrutiny. In the past, they have been criticized for their yellowed appearance, possibly a consequence of his smoking and alcohol consumption. It seems that he has neglected proper dental care, including teeth whitening, until now. In the early 2000s, People magazine named him the most beautiful man in the world twice, and he has continued to captivate female fans with his unique charm.

Luxury perfume brand Dior reportedly assembled a team of beauty specialists in opulent hotel rooms costing over $1,000 per night, ensuring Johnny’s impeccable appearance on the red carpet. However, it appears that even they couldn’t manage to whiten his teeth in such a short time.
After a three-year hiatus from acting since the release of MINAMATA in 2020, Johnny plans to focus on touring with his band, Hollywood Vampires, this summer. A full-fledged return to the silver screen is yet to be seen. It seems the wait for his cinematic comeback continues.
